Rear m3 arm install / adjustable drop links

Post by Rustle » Wed Feb 07, 2018 10:51 pm

I have the arms to install but am wondering if there are any bits or bolts that must / should be replaced at the same time? I’m sure I saw this suggested on s forum somewhere but didn’t see it mentioned on realoem etc.

I’m also thinking of replacing the drop links and thought I’d herb done adjustable ones as a future proof thing. W

Well I cocked that up by pressing submit accidentally. Was meaning to add - how do you decide which adjustment range to get? Is it linear to the amount of drop / Intended drop - eg40mm drop = 40 mm shorter drop link?

I’ve been looking at superpro and whiteline and cant seem to find a good match for the rear in either.
